New Day Trip

It’s 90 years since the public won the right of way to visit and freely explore what have become our National Parks.  Prior to this that right belonged solely to the Landowners and Gentry. To-day we will be visiting the White Peak District in Derbyshire.  Our first stop will be in the lovely village of Castleton, home to the Blue John Mine, where the unique and beautiful gem stone is mined. It is beautifully situated with plenty of interest. Look our for small jewellery shops selling the unique Blue John. There is a lovely selection of morning coffee and lunch venues  but bear in mind we will be having afternoon tea so leave plenty of room.  After spending a pleasant morning we will be off to Whaley Bridge to join our family owned Judith Mary for a 2 hour peaceful cruise on the stunning Upper Peak Forest Canal, which is carved out of the sides of the mountain, overlooking the River Goyt. Travelling through outstanding countryside, the Canal is higher than the railway in parts. During the cruise we will be served with our selection of sandwiches, cream scones and tea/coffee. Ending in New Mills, we can view Kinder Scout the highest plateau in the UK. Sit back, relax and enjoy.

WHEN? Wednesday 3lst August 2022.  Depart 8.30am  Ret.6pm. Seats will be on sale at our table on Tuesday 26th July. Price: £33 includes canal trip and afternoon tea. Payment in full would be appreciated.  There are only 35 seats available  (limited by the size of the boat)
